This is my first tab so please give me some feedback. Thanks!

Standard Tuning

Intro: Frusciante plays this by strumming all the way through, muting the
other strings and only hitting D, the way he plays Cant Stop,
(There are no hammer-ons or pull-offs, he strums every note).

      --->Repeat twice again<---

Last Chorus:
There is only one guitar, but there is a piano backing 
that is alternating between the notes (I think) 
B and D (for those of you that are interested)

E|--------x-------------x-x-----------------|-----------------------|

    Another storm in your teacup, girl


But then the outro-solo:

Gtr. 1 Repeat this 3 times while Gtr. 2 is soloing:
e|-------------------------|-----------|
B|-------------------------|---END-ON--|
